Established in 1977, Pacific Ties is the oldest student-run Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) newsmagazine in the nation. We seek to showcase the rich and diverse stories of the APIDA community on and off campus through news and commentary. Today, we continue to create on-going dialogue that offers insight into the dynamics of being APIDA, challenges the perceptions of APIDA identity, and celebrates the achievements of the communities we all have ties to.
Pacific Ties Newsmagazine aims to be a platform for your expression and a chance to publish. Through our magazine, you will form connections with other APIDA creatives, student groups, and community organizations. You will also gain valuable newsroom knowledge and a better understanding of the APIDA experience.
